Forum: faqs Subject: Is it Possible to Search All the Text in a Collection?

There are a lot of pdf collections out there which have fully OCR'd text, but you can't search for terms in bulk. Is there a way to specify your search of terms to a single collection, even if it is just using Google?

EDIT: To clarify, I have verified that the text is OCR's and "Search Within a Collection" does not turn up results I know are valid.

Thank you.

yes. follow this clickpath:
1. search your term
2. in the results page click the " Search full text of books BETA" check box and search again
3. on the right check the collection you want in the "Collection" facet category

for future searches look at the URL and you can craft URLs that will get you directly to your desired results.

hope this helps.
